Your gift goes a looooong way! We strive to be a good steward of your generous donation, devoting 87 cents of every dollar to enriching the lives of children affected by abuse and neglect. Consider the impact you can make in the life of a local child in your community:

We Get By . . .

With a little help from our friends.

Everyone says they have the greatest friends in the world, but truly, Blue Tent has them.  We cannot thank our partners, sponsors, donors, and other friends enough for all their contributions . . .  But we hope you will want to find out more about them by visiting their sites – both on the web and in person.  Below is a smattering of recognition – we can never give everyone as much as they deserve.


Our Supporters

We are so thankful to have the support of some supremely special companies,organizations, and individuals!

Brewery 85: Our brewery BFFs, Brewery 85 generously hosts Blue Tent’s annual “SIP & SPELL: Adult Spelling Bee.” From offering up their space, providing delicious nectar, and arranging tasty bites, Brewery 85 keeps our hives satisfied and having a fun time.

Camp Tekoa: Since 2012, Blue Tent’s “Camp Opportunity Week” has been held at United Methodist Camp Tekoa in Hendersonville, NC.  At Tekoa, Blue Tent kids enjoy the simple joys of childhood while exploring the great outdoors, challenging themselves within safe boundaries, and building meaningful friendships. We’re forever grateful for Tekoa’s love and passion!

Confederate Ladies Motorcycle Club:  Without you, our campers would not have had the backpacks, towels, toiletries, and other necessities and our Fostering Celebrations birthday kids would go without birthday presents.  THANK YOU for your consistent support!  We heart you.

Engenius: Many thanks to Engenius, as they have continued to provide Camp Opportunity, Inc., with a user-friendly, professional, and attractive website since we were chosen as their grant recipient in 2011.  Camp Opp has witnessed powerful results through increased traffic to our site and the ability to easily update information.

Ethox Chemicals: A longtime friend, we are so grateful that Ethox Chemicals sends teams to all of our events

Fluor: Big thanks to our friends at Fluor who donate to us on a monthly basis via their employee giving program. We love having your support from across the globe!

Great Outdoor Adventure Trips (GOAT):  Since 2009, GOAT has provided team-building and trust to Blue Tent kids through rock climbing and river rafting activities. THANK YOU, GOAT, for being our friend and partner in making memories.  We look forward to a continued partnership with GOAT for years to come!

Greenville Women Giving:  Greenville Women Giving’s support in 2015 transformed Blue Tent and we are forever grateful. The ladies’ $50,000 investment in our transition from one week of summer camp to year-round enrichment has allowed us to triple child participation and provide continuity to our kiddos who need it most.

Iron Order Motorcycle Club:  IOMC, how we love you! From raising money to hauling suitcases at Camp Opportunity Week check-in, you guys go above and beyond for Blue Tent kids.

John I. Smith Charities: We will never be able to express our immense gratitude for their philosophical and financial support.

The Children’s Museum of the Upstate We are honored to be part of the “Fund-A-Family” program and are excited about our kids learning through play, and having the chance to understand that they can be anything!

The Graham Foundation We’re so thankful The Graham Foundation recognizes the need for year-round educational, cultural, and recreational enrichment for children affected by abuse and neglect. Thank you for your support!

The Warehouse Theatre The expressive arts are a cornerstone of Blue Tent’s program and The Warehouse Theatre serves as a critical partner in providing our children a creative outlet through dramatic play.
